BROOKHAVEN, Ga. (AP) - Police in suburban Atlanta say a man who was shot by a homeowner during an attempted burglary has died.

Brookhaven police spokesman Carlos Nino said in an emailed statement Monday that 51-year-old Clendon L. Sims of Atlanta died late last week. Police say Sims was shot in his head during an attempted burglary on Dec. 3.
